WILLY MASON has confirmed the details of new EP ’HARD TO LIE DOWN’.

The record, released on August 15, will be fronted by ’Hard Hand To Hold’, and also features two brand new songs.

The B-sides were recorded live during Mason’s John Peel Stage performance at Glastonbury this year, which featured his brother Sam on drums and his mother Jemima on backing vocals.

The new tracks are ’Wild Dog Blues’, which was written by Mason’s mother, and ’When The

River Moves On’, both of which are previously unreleased. A live version of ’Oxygen’ also features.
